Janice (jamasc) | 48042 comments I hate to tell you this, Margo, but the only one that will work is Ordinary Thunderstorms.

Cold describes temperature and is not a storm.
Ice is not a storm.
Stormbird is a compound word that isn't a storm.


message 15: by Margo (new)

Margo | 9625 comments How about Lightning Janice?


message 16: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 48042 comments Yes, Lightening will work.


message 17: by Margo (new)

Margo | 9625 comments Great, thanks. I kinda knew Stormbird wouldn't fly haha

See what I did there? 😆

Janice (jamasc) | 48042 comments LOL! Good one, Margo.

Cherie (crobins0) | 19816 comments I think you will like Harold, Margo. I should read Queeny's story.

We did a group read for Harold. You should look up the thread. There was a lot of discussion for it.


message 32: by Margo (new)

Margo | 9625 comments I've been meaning to read it since yoou recommended it earlier in the year buy I've been so caught up in challenges etc. I want to read Queenies story for the toppler so I finally got the push I needed to read Harold!

message 37: by Margo (new)

Margo | 9625 comments I'll proably go with Let Me Lie. I really like Clare MacIntosh. I have already made a false start at it last month but I wasn't in the mood for a mystery.

I have lots of "good" and lots of "lies" , what does that tell you lol

Janice (jamasc) | 48042 comments Good lies. LOL! The book sounds interesting. I look forward to your comments about it.

Margo | 9625 comments This is the list of the 13 books that I would have to read before 2019 to get the 3rd badge.

I am starting to feel a bit pressured with reading lately between buddy reads, group reads and challenges. This leaves me concentrating more on when I will finish instead of listening to the story. - especially if it's not enthralling! This is why I reached the descision to be satisfied badge 2. I will dip into this list as and when the mood takes me ;-)

Taurus ANIMAL A Noise Downstairs
Gemini SYMBOL Blade Runner
Cancer STONE Tilt-a-Whirl
Virgo ACTOR The Boys from Brazil
Libra ANIMAL Daughter of the Forest
Aquarius SYMBOL Major Pettigrew's Last Stand
Cancer ANIMAL Love in the Time of Cholera
Virgo ANIMAL The Boys from Brazil
Libra MONTH See You In September
Scorpio SUPERHERO The City & the City
Sagittarius The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian
Aquarius ELEMENT Thin Air
Pisces ANIMAL Pines

Jenn | 2142 comments I hear you on the pressure, I did a little mental checklist for October last night and had similar thoughts. I’m in agreement, I’ll just line them up and enjoy them one by one 😃


message 44: by Margo (new)

Margo | 9625 comments Exactly Jenn! I have never tried to control my reading as much as this year and it is driving me nuts 😡 Well I'm breaking out of this cage I've built myself!! OK I'll still read the challenge books but one my own schedule - OOO what a rebel I am LOL

Obviously I'll start october with The City & the City! I'm really looking forward to one and I have got a library download ready to roll 😉


message 45: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 48042 comments Good decision, Margo. The idea is to have fun. I doubt that I will finish badge 3 either. I'll keep plugging away on it, but I'm not going to pressure myself into finishing it.


message 46: by Margo (new)

Margo | 9625 comments Thanks Janice ☺It is such a great challenge and I am having fun with it.
